Cupcake Crazy

I can't understand this current obsession with cupcakes, it seems the country has gone cupcake mad. Did you know it was National Cupcake Week last week? Whatever next?, they are everywhere, and now they are on my card!
This week's challenge at Raise The Bar is 'Something Yummy' and I remembered I had a cupcake image on my Kirsty Wiseman CD. Personally speaking, I find Prawn Dhansak and Pilau rice a lot more yummy, but aesthetically it's not quite so pleasing! I'm also entering this card into Clean & Simple's FTL 108 sketch challenge.

The cardstock was cut and embossed with nesties and the back piece scored near the top so that it would stand when attached to the front. I stamped 'Hello' by Stampendous and heat embossed it with clear EP.

Does anyone know why the C & S sketch is called Fall to ? (Layout) Perhaps I am being spectacularly thick but it has me puzzled. Answers on a postcard please.........
TFL and ttfn,

  1. Super cute card, love the cherry and the repeated polka elements. I think it is called the Fall To Layouts because you can always depend on them for a sketch, something that you can always go to for inspiration, or fall to. That's my opinion anyway!

  2. Hiya Fiona. Cute Cupcake card. They'll always be fairy cakes to me though.... I've always been a bit partial to a fairy or two (not to eat mind!!

  3. Oh wow, such a gorgeous cupcake card Fiona! I love the use of red and white together and I love your take on the sketch! I'm sorry, this one's got me stumped as well, I haven't got a clue about the name 'Fall To' for the sketch??? :)

  4. Fabulous card... and I'm with you about the 'Fall to' business... haven't got a clue!
